Port Elizabeth - Several shops belonging to Somali nationals in KwaZakhele and New Brighton, near Port Elizabeth, were looted and burnt at the weekend, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

Brigadier Marinda Mills said at least 10 shops were attacked.

“Two shops at Ntintili Street were looted and burnt and the vehicle which was parked outside the shop was set alight,” said Mills.

Several other shops were targeted on Sunday.

Police had since moved some foreign nationals out of the area.

The attacks followed the arrest of a Somali national after he allegedly shot and killed a man outside a shop on Saturday evening.

“According to a witness, there was an argument between the suspect and the victim. The police arrested the suspect and the firearm used... was recovered,” said Mills.

The man was expected to appear in court soon.

Meanwhile, police had been deployed to patrol the area.

DreamKing must be one of the disenfranchised majority that don't like to work for their money.

when you know the facts that how they operate their "businesses", you will find that it is not a joke.

want to know?
Yes please.

Perhaps I'll instantly disregard the fact that Somali shop owners order an average R2million in cooking oil from a close buddy (the oil is then distributed amongst themselves to minimise its cost for their customers.)

I found it out recently....

stock:
1) smuggle hijacked cargo ships containers to SA.
2) steal containers from ports.
3) hijack local trucks
4) steal local warehouses

retail shop:
1) sell lower than the cost prices
2) expand any position available in the area.
3) wide range of goods / products. anything from ipod, cell phone to milk power, nappies, toilet paper.

they rob the local / foreign legal owners, and sell their loots locally below the cost prices.
their practices are aim to kill all local small businesses.

their actions create more dangerous and damages than cheap chinese imports and nigerian drug dealers to SA. :mad:

Seven arrested for looting in PE

Seven men have been arrested for looting and burning Somali-owned shops in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

"We can confirm that seven suspects have since been arrested and charged with public violence. All the suspects are in their late 20s," said Colonel Sibongile Soci.

They were expected to appear in the New Brighton Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Soci said no new incidents had been reported and the police were closely monitoring the situation.

At least 10 shops in KwaZakhele and New Brighton were attacked.

Brigadier Miranda Mills said two shops were looted and burnt in Ntintili street, and a car parked outside was also set alight at the weekend.

Several other shops were targeted on Sunday following the arrest of a Somali man accused of shooting dead a man outside a shop on Saturday evening.

"According to a witness there was an argument between the suspect and the victim. The [police] arrested the suspect and the firearm used... was recovered," said Mills.

Police had since moved some foreigners out of the area.

That doesn't sound much different from our locals.
They also steal but don't sell it cheaper, nope, they rip off their own ppl.

Concrete evidence would help.

Was a war zone in PE last night... Motherwell, Kleinskool, KwaDesi, Kwazakhele, Zwide, New Brighton, etc.

Started out as a Somalian shop looting spree then spread to the Chinese shops.

All this over a single incident where the Somalian perpetrator has already been arrested.
